to end the fighting in syria. her meeting with russia's foreign minister came as rebels intensified the fighting around the capital of damascus. now, speaking for the first time about the meeting, secretary clinton laid out her vision of a syria without president assad. >> the united states stands with the syrian people in insisting that any transition process result in a unifyied, democratic syria in which all citizens are represented; sunni, alawite, christians, kurds, jews, men, women, every syrian must be included in this process for a new and better future. and a future of this kind cannot possibly include assad. heather: secretary clinton also called the meeting a beginning and warning that there's still a lot of hard work ahead. jon? jon: the world is waiting for assad's next move. if intelligence reports are correct, he already has ordered his military to prepare chemical weapons. those, we can only presume, would be used against his own people. recent rebel victories seem to give him more incentive to use such weapons, so what can we expect if he does? how do we react, and
that has any sway whatsoever is russia. seems to me president obama needs to be on the phone and make certain the russians are taking the right. >> apparently hillary clinton is talking. >> that's the only route that is going to stop this from happening. if left to his own devices, he will use those. >> and what about the countries that boarder. turkey. this stuff doesn't just stop. it gets into the atmosphere. you can't bomb the place. you have to send in ground troops. and now what happens ? the best thing that could happen is puten makes a phone call and says cut this stuff out. the middle east has gotten to be a very serious problem for everybody. >> maybe we will focus more on that next time around. the fiscal cliff keeps going and going. thank you both for coming in. good to talk to you again. allison, back to you. >> tony, thank you. still ahead at 7:00 , the sense of a woman now available in deep dish. as we go to break, holiday greetings from our service members overseas. >> good morning. this is williams your daughter. this message is for you. i wish you guys a happy holiday

control of syria? what does that many and how significant is that coming from russia? >> reporter: it's pretty enormous for those in damascus certainly. russia has been a political stalwart ally for political and diplomatic months over the past revolts 21 months long now. the point man of the middle east, deputy more than minister, saying he thinks unfortunately rebel victory is in fact possible.than minister, saying he thinks unfortunately rebel victory is in fact possible. suggesting we're seeing the trend moving in rebel direction. that's a big deal because in the past ten days to a week, we've seen the russians reassess that position, get involved with the meetings with the u.s., have lower level politicians saying the government isn't up to its job and putin be very friendly with turkish leaders, trying to make sure that relationship hasn't been permanently damaged. and now today we're seeing the first clear time that russia thinks assad is over. his days are perhaps numbered. and that will have huge ramifications on those inside the syrian regime worried themselves, seeing thems
not stand the wake of the soviet union. there was a movement in russia to and secrecy and to discuss the past openly. this was an authentic movement on the ground up and people at the top sympathize with it. the archives began to open in the '90s and were in some ways extraordinarily accessible working with western scholars. there are many instances of that. i did begin to have the impression pours into the '90s, i began to have the impression that one of the other reasons why they were open was because the russians were so preoccupied with other things at that time that they didn't really care. people have often said to me how as a young american, an american woman how cute you be wondering around those archives? i think the attitude was, she wants to look at old documents, so what? what? we are busy proof reforming our economy. what happened is putin became president of russia and he had a much more instrumental idea of what it was for anti-read politicized history and began to become much more conscious overworked history was told and how it was being told. this really trickles do

agency predicts that the u.s. could overtake saudi arabia and russia as the world's largest oil producer by 2020. much of the current energy boom comes from the increasing use of a process known as hydraulic fracturing or more common name fracking. in which oil and natural gas are extracted by shooting huge quantities of water, sand and chemicals into the ground at high speed to break up shale rock formations. in his state of the union address in january president obama haled the economic benefits warning of potential safety risks. >> we have a supply of natural gas that can last america nearly 100 years. [ applause ] and my administration will take every possible action to safely develop this energy. >> although burning natural gas releases only half as much carbon emissions as coal or petroleum many remain concerned about fracking harmful effects on the water supply, air equality and live stock. the cause has found a number of prominent spokes people. >> people understand that fracking is not safe and no matter what the gas and oil industry tells them, they're not willing to leave a to
